I'm away on an extended weekend, so I had to shut F@H down. Left a couple of WCG boxes running, but I couldn't risk the heat leaving all of the systems running.
Yes the warmer weather is coming and some considerations have to be made regarding heat. I went upstairs today and found that the four GPUs folding there were reducing core speed because of the thermal limit was getting close. I refuse to run higher than 70 % fan.
Have a nice extended weekend.

I take it some of you only have everything on during the winter, but could you use some of them during the night or is it still too hot then? :)

Hope you have a great time @thebluebumblebee :D

I'm looking at possibly getting a more efficient power supply before the hot days come. My unit is "80 plus", not even bronze. A Titanium unit that pulls less power would result in a little less heat.

I do reduce my folding during summer primarily due to electricity consumption. I have no problem using 60-80 kWh/day during winter since I have electrical heating but I'm saving +$300/month during summer with only doing on/off folding.

I can put a personal recommendation of the EVGA units, the G+ range has been brilliant for me :)

That's a massive amount of electric!! :shocked: I've stopped running the crunchers during the evening now as I need to save some cash, it's amazing how much electric you can use with all this kit running :) Thankfully the solar will take a lot of that load but only during the times of like 9am till 4pm.. That said if I can generate about 4kW an hour, I'm aiming to use as much as possible :D

I'm looking at this one, as it's the cheapest Titanium unit on Newegg:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA9ZN5D46370
I've not heard of that model of unit, but I've the 650 and 850 models of this unit :) I'd be very surprised if the difference that the Gold to Titanium level of PSU would actually save as much electric as it costs extra to buy.. I might be out on that but I've just gone for mostly gold units, but if the price is not that much different to a Platinum or Titanium level unit, I'd pick one of those up :)

2 years warranty is not much. I would rather pay a bit extra to get 7 years and peace of mind.
The EVGA models I have bought gave me 12 years :)

7, 10 or 12 years. At least the producers have some confidence in their products. I would say that is a no-brainer.

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA9ZN5D46370
That unit appears to an Andyson, and it's just too expensive to justify, especially with that 2 year warranty. You can do the math to determine the ROI, but a Gold rated PSU like this one makes more sense and cents. (suggest reading newtekie1's write up: How does PSU efficiency affect me and do I really need an 80 Plus Gold Power Supply?)

EDIT: Of course, as soon as I post that, I see this (which hits/beats my $0.10/watt price threshold):

I was lucky, I had some mentally cheap PSUs and for the money I'd recommend them hands down :) That said, a 750w Seasonic is a decent unit for sure as well :)

So, when I went to shut down the GTX 980 Ti's system before my weekend away, I touched the top of the case and realized how warm it was. Yesterday, I finally got around to actually cleaning it and found that the filters on the Define S did their job, but they were all clogged. I knew that the spot where I placed that system was bad for dirt, but I didn't realized how bad. I've moved it to another location.

It's back on. With 6 threads crunching (WCG), maybe I can stop @Arjai from beating me 3 days in a row!

Well, it looks like it's that time of year again, coupled with a massive screw up by my power company. I received a call about 2 months ago that informed me that I was now some $700 behind on my electric bill through no fault of my own. See, they replaced a billing method that varied the due amount over the year, with it being a bit lower when usage was higher and a bit higher when usage was lower. The system lowered the highest bills and raised the lowest ones. But that wasn't good enough, so they came out with "equal pay," which is exactly what it sounds like, that you pay the same every month based on your usage history. Thing is, they forgot to implement an audit feature and ended up in this mess. So, my electric bill is jumping ~25% for the next 2 years.

Secondly, the weather forecast is filled with 70°F days. In the past, I've been able to run until the beginning of June, but not these last 2 years. I hate to do this now because I've been getting some high PPD WU's, but oh well. I'll most likely click on "finish" Wednesday morning. Not sure what I'm going to do on the WCG side.

Thing is, they forgot to implement an audit feature and ended up in this mess. So, my electric bill is jumping ~25% for the next 2 years.

Secondly, the weather forecast is filled with 70°F days. In the past, I've been able to run until the beginning of June, but not these last 2 years. I hate to do this now because I've been getting some high PPD WU's, but oh well. I'll most likely click on "finish" Wednesday morning. Not sure what I'm going to do on the WCG side.
That's a real crock mate, I've just cut down my crunching and folding to whatever the sun is doing on the day rather than running 24/7. It would cost me £90 a month (£3 a day or so) more on top of my whatever it is my current bill. Crunching and folding can get very expensive and I have slowed down my production because of it.
I tend to run the more efficient crunchers and the folding I only really do when the sun is really out so I'm producing a load more solar than I can use.. 2 1080 Ti's and a 5960X overclocked can take 700w or more on it's own... The cost of pie is high :(

I think it's very honourable that you run as much as you do @thebluebumblebee, same goes for @Norton @HammerON , hang on, I'll say any in either of the top ten (narrows it down a little) but that doesn't include at all the cost of the hardware.. We do a lot more for these causes than I believe anyone gives or gets credit for.

Apologies in advance :)

Thank you :) I do have something to share with everyone that does FAH and WCG, so I hope that will put some smiles on some faces :)

Yeah, I've got to kill one of my 1080Ti's because the summer is here and it heats up the house too much. It was nice during the winter though.

Just as a heads up everyone :)

Sorry for your loss, and don't worry about stats, take care of the family first!

Only one?? I think it must be down to my room with the other rigs on and working, it can get a little warm.. Needless to say though, what do you expect for 6 rigs on at once in a not small, but not large room?? :) Thank god for my big fan :laugh:

I can grab the stats but I might not be posting them that would be all, with some luck anyways :) I can always share my Excel sheet I use as it's a pretty easy to use thing, well it has to be, cos I made it!! :D :laugh:

Yeah, the one in my main rig needed to be turned off. That one is in my home office, which isn't that big, so it gets warm quick. Still folding on the GTX1060 in the other rig in the home office though.

The other rigs are all at my work office, which I don't really care how hot it gets, because I'm rarely there. I'm actually tempted to grab another GTX1060 to put in my main rig for the summer, and move the 1080Ti to a rig in my work office.

We are also thinking about moving my work office to a new building where I would no longer pay the electric, the landlord would pay it... Free electricity means more rigs for folding!
